The Afghan people, especially women and girls, fear a return to the darkest days. UNHCR is on the ground in Afghanistan, providing protection and relief to over 550,000 people forced to flee their homes.
With reports of women giving birth on roads without medical assistance, in times like this, women and children are often 50% of civilian casualties. In this emergency and beyond, UNHCR is committed to stay and protect.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, works to protect and assist refugees everywhere.
